” My goal as a therapist is to help my clients identify negative beliefs that have shaped the way they view themselves and the world around them. I work with the client to re-frame these false assumptions into true conclusions and empower the client to make changes in the way they interact with the world.”
Anxiety and Depression, Grief, Loss and Trauma
Attachment Issues, Family Problems, Relationship Issues
I have been working in the mental health field since 2011 when I started my career at a residential treatment center for adolescent girls and their families. At this center, I worked with various mental health issues, including substance use, eating disorders, attachment issues, and anxiety and depression. I was able to witness the resiliency of families affected by trauma as they created new patterns of relating to each other and to the world around them. Through these experiences, I learned how to foster change within family systems and empower individuals to live by their personal values.
My style of therapy focuses on assessing the unwritten rules of a system and encouraging second order change–change not just in behaviors but in underlying beliefs. I work to create a safe space by building the therapeutic alliance between client and therapist, and believe that relationships have substantial power to effect lasting change.
I graduated in 2015 with my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, and in 2018 with my Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy. When I’m not at work, I enjoy creating artwork with my friends, listening to horror fiction podcasts, and traveling the world with my pilot boyfriend.
